Professional Responsibility CLE Approval The MCLE Board handles all aspects of CLE except the approval of the content of courses or activities in the area of professional responsibility. Once the MCLE Board has either accredited a provider or an individual course, any course or course segment offered to fulfill the professional responsibility requirement must receive substantive approval from the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism (Commission). ApexCLE must submit an application for professionalism credit to the Professionalism Commission in order for a program to be approved for professionalism credit. After review and approval of the content, the Commission will forward its determination to the provider and to the MCLE Board. The Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism has approved the substance of each of the courses provided in ApexCLE's "Professionalism/Ethics Series."
